Pure gay twirl. Dripping with deceit. Diabolical distortion.<quoted text>
This list fails to provide any scientifically justifiable excuse or legitimate governmental interest sufficient for denial of equal treatment under the law as required by the constitution. It is based on prejudice alone.
It also ignores that ability for procreation has never been a requirement to get a marriage license.
And while gay people will never be the majority, even if everyone turned gay tomorrow, people would still have children. Gay people can and do reproduce, using all of the same wide variety of methods available to straight couples who need assistance. The turkey baster method is the most popular method of assisted reproduction at home, and requires no medical assistance. Some couples choose to use biological material from one partner combined with the biological material from a relative of the other partner, so that the child is related to both partners. Some women choose to use the fertilized egg from one, implanted in the other so that one parent is the biological mother while the other parent is the birth mother.
For many couples, being biologically related is not important, and they simply adopt.
Adopted children can do just as well and are often treated better than biological children.
30 years of research shows children of gay couples can do just as well as those from straight couples, and the determining factor is the relationship between the parents and child, not the gender of the parents.
Again I ask why that is necessary for a just cause.
Please specify a single point on the "If You" list that is not simple fact.
Marriage has historically been the identity of a unique and foundational relationship in society. The law recognizes and supports that in numerous ways. Gays have every opportunity to pursue appropriate rights on their own merits without imposing a imposter relationship on marriage.
Who said procreation is a 'requirement' of marriage? It is simply a fact of marriage, a consequence of marriage and even a cause of marriage.
The only comparison gays have with a natural family is when nature has gone awry. Survival of the fittest in evolution has determined that a biological father and mother are the best. Humans have formalized and supported that dictate with marriage.
Your assertions about studies about gay families has been debunked for numerous reasons. You know that.
"Oxford, June 10, 2012 - Despite considerable research showing that children of same-sex parents fare just as well as children with heterosexual parents, two papers - a review of existing studies and a new study - published today in Elsevier’s Social Science Research, find insufficient data to draw any definitive conclusions.
The review by Dr. Loren Marks from Louisiana State University finds that much of the science that forms the basis for the highly regarded External link 2005 official brief on same-sex parenting by the American Psychological Association (APA) does not stand up to scrutiny. The new study by University of Texas sociologist and professor Mark Regnerus, provides compelling new evidence that numerous differences in social and emotional well-being do exist between young adults raised by women who have had a lesbian relationship and those who have grown up in a nuclear family."
